Assisted suicide is still a very controversial and divisive topic of debate. Anne Morgellyn tackles it in Fatal Choices in a sympathetic and moving way. The central character, Louise's good friend has gone to a clinic in Geneva to end his life. She cannot understand what motivated him to do it, and as she searches for answers, she comes across another lost soul who is contemplating the same fate. This book makes you wonder what you would do if somebody who was desperately unhappy came to you for financial help with assisted suicide. An interesting and thought-provoking premise to a story.
Assisted suicide is not a subject one would choose to read, but in this book it is handled with tact. It also raises some important ethical points in an almost Godless society. It made me wonder, and convinced me that it should not be carried out with a profit in mind. It is a good read and I highly recommend it.
This is the last title in Anne Morgellyn's Louise Moon series. Louise is investigating a Swiss clinic offering assisted suicide for a payment of €7000, as well as trying to save her marriage. When she is asked for money to help a man die, she faces an existential dilemma. Grripping.
